Project: - Webdesign


My webpage has been undergoing some major changes through the years that I've had it up and running (I guess it's 10 years or so, if not longer). For several years it only contained links to my different music projects as I was using a CMS that stopped working as either PHP or the servers got updated. Not quite sure why it stopped, but at least I ended up with lots of error messages and so I just kept it running with minimum information for many years, up until now.

This domain and it's server has been my constant, but the webpage has changed a lot. I've gone from very stupid (and very ugly) designs when I was younger and I was learning HTML, to generally OK pages, and now this. I think this is probably one of the more mature designs I've done, and it's based off of Bootstrap (that everyone seems to be using these days). I, however, wanted to keep a color scheme that was a bit different from the everyday pages you find online, but at the same time I didn't want it to be as colorful as the previous design I had was. There's something about the fine line between 'nice and colorful' and 'too much'. I started with a much darker/monochrome design, but then I changed the header for this photo that I took a year (or two) ago, and I decided to design the webpage around those colors.

I'm not 100% happy with it now either, but it's at least a lot nicer than the previous webpages I've designed. As coding (no matter what type of coding) is something I want to spend my life doing, I'm always going to find ways to improve what I've done and create hopefully something better with every attempt. At least that's how webdesign has been for me this far. I'll update below with pictures of previous webpages when I get the picures ready.
